'll push as hard as we can. martha: mark these send, former speechwriter to president george w. bush. alcan combs -- alan colmes, host of the "alan colmes radio show". good morning. big day in america. great to have you both with us. you heard david plouffe's remarks. you worked for president george w. bush. is there common ground that needs to be sought on this issue in this country, do you think? >> i think there can be. look, i have two daughters who are the exact same age as the kids who died in newtown. there are a lot of things the republicans can support like the president announced. better gun owner and safety education and mental health support and helping develop emergency responses and the rest but when the president goes to gun control i think the public support and bipartisan support drops dramatically. there is a fox news poll shows only 22% of americans believe more gun control would have actually stopped an incident in newtown where as 71% think the criminals will get guns anyway. the 71% are right. there sim peer call evidence that shows it. i think it is a mistake to go af
. is that the case? karl rove, former senior advisor to president george w. bush and a fox news contributor and good morning to you, karl. i see you stayed far away from washington, d.c. today, back there in austin, texas. what do you think that number, 55%, reflects based on what we've watched over the past two months? >> well, it reflects people paying attention to what's been going on. the president has been far more confrontational after the election. in fact, excuse me, "new york times" article yesterday interviewing a bunch of his friends where one of the takeaways from his friends and aides, he would be quote, more bloody-minded about republicans. recent stories in both the post and "l.a. times" and "new york times" where his aids felt aides felt he was liberated in his section term. liberated from what? take on political opposition and focus on defeating the republicans in the fourth fourth election. most presidents say they're liberated. i'm never on the ballot again. i can work with people to bring together big purposes. the president has much smaller objective. let me beat use my power to

is 2005, the george w. bush second inauguration, $45 million was raised for his committee. security costs there were comparable. there rose fivefold after 9/11. by 2005 they were in the $100 million range. this inauguration, despite hardships, the numbers are staying fairly concept -- fairly constant. host: our first president was sworn in on april 30 in new york city. it has moved back and forth from the east front to other locations on capitol hill. from harry truman through jimmy carter, it was always on the east front of the capital. moved by the congressional committee to the west front in 1985, which is where it remains today. kansas, independent line, good morning. caller: i think it is amazing that we all want to complain about every penny that is spent in washington, d.c., because of the inauguration. this is something special that happens every four years. surely, surely, people, you can understand. if you have a wedding, you do not spend that every year. you wait and you spend a fortune. the inauguration is very special to people, we should sit back and relax. it is a big event
to elbow their way to the front. for george h.w. bush that's a great example. another great example, william f. buckley. he had liberal friends. in fact, he campaigned for liberals that were his friends even though he knew it upset some on the conservative side. for william f. buckley, it wasn't a blood sport. >> to end this block, to counter it just a bit, and i'm sorry but it has the added value of being true, the president does need to reach out.agree. but he has, and it hasn't worked. so when he does it again, the republicans actually need to show up. >> you just quoted henry kissinger. there is hope. >> that's like me going jogging for ten minutes and saying afterwards, you know what i didn't lose 30 pounds. no i'm dead serious. they have stuck their toe in the water. that is it. when you still have democrats, democratic senators that run the senate andrea mitchell complaining that they've never been to camp david, the president doesn't call them they don't go over to the white house, then it's time for him to be more aggressive about this. >> two points quic

children's lives and if it's true that dick cheney and george w. bush believe in the 1% solution if there was a 1% chance that we could stop another 9/11 they would do what it took to take rid of that 1% chance. the i think if that was our approach after 9/11 it should be our approach in protecting our children at schools and shopping malls and religious services. and society abroad. >> rose: and do you think the experience that you had and the awareness that you have reflected here and on your own program in public speeches has resonated with other republicans? >> it has resonated with other republicans but only because they were thinking the same thing as i was thinking. i can't tell you, charlie. i come from northwest florida, also known as the redneck riviera. some people call it l.a.-- lower alabama. we're very conservative. jerry falwell said my district was the most conservative district in america. i grew up in the southern baptist church with a lot of hunters. i lived in mississippi, we spent our summers in the woods. i can tell you, i grew up around hunters and guns and
about george w. bush, they're shredding the constitution tonight. >> that was a lie when they said it about george w. bush and it's a lie when they're saying it about anthony scalia. what scalia said was it protects america's right to constitutional arms. >> if you listen to the president, you would think that's the view of all of them. >> of course. >>> we'll move onto the debt ceiling with the government on pace to run out of money by mid-february. >> yesterday, the president warned republican leaders raising the nation's borrowing limit was non-negotiable and congress aimed to use it as lever eventuallyiage for deep s. >> while i'm willing to find middle ground to reduce our deficits, america cannot afford another debate. not paying its bills is irresponsible. it's absurd. republicans in congress have two choices here. they can act responsibly and pay america's bills or they can act irresponsibly and put america through another economic crisis. but they will not collect or ransom in exchange for not crashing the america economy. the financial well-being of the american people is
under george w. bush -- >> 19 times. they voted 19 times. some $4 trillion they raised the debt ceiling 19 times under bush. without a peep, without a squeal. regular, standard votes. >> bill: no demands. >> no demands at all. >> bill: no unless you do this, we're going to shut it down. just 19 times. and now it is pure politics with barack obama. and i thought the president did a very good job yesterday of calling them out. we played this clip earlier. the republicans have two choice. do the responsible thing and pay our bills or -- >> send this country into a tailspin. it will be on their heads. when you have outside republicans saying you can't play these kinds of games you're going to pay for it politically, at the end of the day, i don't know how many of them are going to be able to. >> bill: ben bernanke from the fed telling congress hey, get serious. get serious. raise the debt ceiling and stop playing games. i don't know igor. got a lot to keep track of. somehow you manage to stay on top of all of it. >> great team over at think progress. >> bill: thinkprogress.org. thank you so
come to this extremist point from what we have heard to president george w. bush resigning? there are a couple of things going on here. they are coming to an end. which is good news for the rest of us. there has been a 30 year drift since reagan to the right in the republican party. reagan when he made those statements didn't have to deal with rush limbaugh. he said something at that point and you also have a natural evolution of special interest groups and it is not just the nra. it is both sides of the abortion debate. it is some of the environmentalists. they take the most extreme position possible in order to raise money from their most devoted ne nat ticks. i know members who resigned in the past year because a lot of the stuff that was coming out from that organization before this election was really vile stuff about the president. and they have gone off the deep end. here is ronald reagan in a 1999 ceremony. >> i want to tell all of you here today something that i'm not sure you know. you do know that i'm a member of the nra. and my position on the right to bear arms

by refusing to raise the debt ceiling, something they agreed to rather effortlessly 25 times under george w. bush and ronald reagan. this would be the decision that would be only as disastrous as it is profoundly unnecessary. because the truth is, as president obama noted yesterday the u.s. economy's actually poised for a good year if only congress can get out of the way. i kind of paraphrased that last part. now that we know we're not going to be minting a trillion dollar coin, we need something different. a bill that would repeal the debt ceiling altogether. it is an idea supported publicly by alan greenspan and times man of the year last year, ben bernanke. it is an idea that could prevent lawmakers from lurching our country from one crisis to the next just to ring out some short-term gain until another republican sits in the oval office. that's why it's probably an idea that this congress has no chance of making law. but joining me now is one of the sponsors of the bill to repeal the debt ceiling altogether, democratic congressman from vermont and a member of the committee on house over
to george w. bush has reuped his contract. according to politico -- >> there is this from our twitter -- the role of government in solving america's problems and we reflect on what dwithe eisenhower said 52 years ago in his farewell speech. ken is joining us from texas. good morning. caller: good morning. thanks very much for c-span. and what i wanted to say is that government has always been involved in the lives of citizens and has done lots of good things. when you take a look at what is happening, if you look to the south how successful mr. she vezz has been and now that he's passed away in cuba they have kept it quiet but his government is functioning without him. even though he didn't go through the swearing in ceremonies the vice president is stepping forward to help the country move forward t in the best way they can. it's very very heartening to see how the citizens of venn sale la have been successful in moving forward and putting their lives forward. they live in a house for two years and it's them whether they bought it or paid for it. it's maizing the role the government
that george h.w. bush got in 1988. george h.w. bush won a landslide over michael dukakis. we know what happened to mitt romney. the same thing's happening now. the political ground is moving under their feet, and right now, sadly, neither they, nor the nra, is doing what it takes to make sure they adapt to changing times. and if they don't do it pretty y quickly, there's going to be changes for both organizations. >> more broadly among house republicans, you wrote in their response to colin powell, you in 1996 did not think he was the right choice to be the nominee, but you said the republican party of 2013 bears little resemblance to the party of ronald reagan that would have responded to powell's concerns with an all hands on deck effort to win the war back. it's big enough to win back the white house in 2016. and that's, to the point, we have a more and more bifurcated congress, not the congress you served in. there were 49 votes, only 49 votes for sandy relief last night. that says a lot. there were more than 49 votes for gulf damage and repair after katrina. >> colin powell is a m
two living presidents george h.w. bush who was just released from the hospital and is who is now recovering, and george w. bush who sends his regrets. >> so as it happens because of the illness of the elder mr. bush, there will be only democratic presidents in attendance today. very, very unusual circumstance. the headline of the hour, the news broke moments ago by bob schieffer is that the republican leadership at this moment is in the white house having coffee with the president. perhaps a hopeful sign that agreements might come with the new year. >>> here's what's coming up the rest of this inauguration day. at 10:40, the president and mrs. obama leave the white house for the capital. the inaugural ceremonies begin at 11:30 and include the ceremonial swearing-in of vice president biden. then at 11:55, president obama will be sworn in by chief justice john roberts. and at noon, the president will deliver his inaugural address. that will be followed by lunch at the capital. then around 2:30, the president leads a procession back to the white house where he and the first lady wil

to war in iraq, that is the original sin of the george w. bush era in america. but it does not mean that they cooked up all that fake and misleading intelligence all by themselves. some of it came from enemies of saddam and iraqi exiles and expats who shoved it to the u.s., knowing it was false, but hoping we would nevertheless fall for it because they wanted us to invade. that recent history of the u.s. and how we get into wars these days looms large. it looks large particularly on days like this when we see bombshell headlines like this one. our friend josh rogin at foreign policy tonight reporting that someone inside the obama administration says that he or she has seen a cable that if the information in that cable is true would be a very scary thing. the headline, as you can see there, "chemical weapons used in syria." chemical weapons used. nobody is known to have used chemical weapons in 25 years. we know syria has them. but have they used them in their civil war? because that really would change everything. but look back at that headline again. the part before the part that w

george w. bush. the zone is particularly sensitive because it would completely bisect the west bank, dashing with a remote hopes remain for two-state solution. the obama administration has refused to cut aid or even offer criticism, limiting its reaction to calling the expansion "counterproductive." new details have been revealed on the obama administration's weapon sales to bahrain after -- during the ruling monarchy's ongoing crackdown on opposition protesters. the website propublica reports the u.s. has sold weaponry including ammunition, combat vehicle parts, communications equipment, blackhawk helicopters, and an undisclosed missile system to bahrain since the protests began nearly two years ago. it is unclear if all the purchases were delivered, but they provide a key window into the extent of u.s. support for the bahrain government -- regime as it faced international condemnation for repressing dissent. all the weapons are supposed to only be used for self-defense, some may have been used against civilian demonstrators. iran helicopters reportedly fired on protesters in march
all of our presidents were there, including george h.w. bush and george w. bush and i can tell you firsthand that there were several boos in the audience not just for george w. bush, and h.w. bush, but for barbara bush and lawyer a bush. i don't know if we are at less of a divide. president obama will set the tone today. that may be a foreshadowing of things to come as he goes into his second term and they remain at loggerheads. joining us throughout the day brit hume and chris wallace are with us here on the set. let me ask you about that. it was an unfortunate event, the because, i can tell you i heard them and they were loud and it was an unfortunate moment. are we in less of a partisan moment now. >> i don't think so. it goes to one of two pieces of clearly unfish eurbd business frounfinished business, to sue night the count kraoe which has not occurred. we are more divided than before. and get the economy on a surround recovery to get out of a recession that we've had. the pieces of business hangover the president. he has proven that you can get reelected in a weak economy, wh

that the republicans have one idea, and that's to cut spending. they don't do that when george w. bush was -- >> i thought their one idea, david, was cutting the deficit. >> that's -- they say that's the case, but it really is they want to just talk about spending cuts as if that is going to help the economy. and any mainstream economist now tells you that you may have to do that in some ways for long-term deficit implications but that's not good in the short run. even simpson/bowles say don't cut so fast. >> and just to be clear, it's not at all clear that they actually have coherent plans for anything they're suggesting. they have sort of hand waving spending cuts, entitlement reform without really writing down a specific path to get there. >> incredible. david corn and jared bernstein, gentlemen, thank you so much. stay with us. we'll be right back. what do we want to build next ? that's the question. every day. when you have the most advanced tools, you want to make something with them. something that helps. helps safeguard our shores. helps someone see through a wall of fire. helps those nowh
